Temples are often overlooked, but they have a big impact on face shape and the patient’s perceived age. Often, our clients notice their face looking older and gaunter, but they can’t quite pinpoint the problem.
While facial volume loss can occur anywhere, loss of fullness at the temples lends the face an aged, angular appearance. Hollow temples present as moderate to deep indentations along the lateral edge of the forehead.
Place your finger at the tail end of your eyebrow, slide your finger toward the hairline, and you may feel a dip or indentation. Beautiful eyes are our specialty. Learn about the most effective treatments for eye rejuvenation.
Correcting volume loss in the temple area is easy with temple augmentation. Youthful faces have nice, rounded temples. Dr. Sadati can help you accomplish this with treatments that are designed to correct:
Our full suite of anti-aging solutions helps patients get temples that look nice and full, just as they did years ago — perhaps, even better!
Dermal fillers are often the first line of defense for sunken temples. Voluma is a high-density filler made of hyaluronic acid gel that is perfect for temple and cheek augmentation. The smooth gel formula is more cohesive than other dermal fillers in the Juvederm family, which is the reason it is ideal for the temple area.
The dermal fillers are the real deal, so you can achieve long-lasting results. Dr. Kevin Sadati, DO is an expert when it comes to facial injections. He will carefully sculpt the filler to create a nice, rounded temple that complements your face shape. Because Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural ingredient that is present in the skin, it has a low risk of allergy. There is no downtime, and Juvederm Voluma results are instant. In minutes, it fills sunken temples. The results last 1-2 years on average. With instant gratification and timeless results, it’s no wonder Juvederm is the secret to a youthful face.
RESTYLANE DEFYNE FOR TEMPLES
Restylane Defyne is FDA approved for mid-to-deep face wrinkles. This effective hyaluronic acid gel has a smooth, cohesive formula that is similar to Juvederm Voluma. Again, this makes it well suited for temples. When the FDA approved Defyne in 2016, it was yet another accomplishment for Galderma, the world’s #1 manufacturer of cosmetic injectables.
Restylane is their most popular dermal filler by far. The company has a long track record of safety and efficacy since the first Restylane product was approved nearly 20 years ago. Dr. Sadati will perform a quick series of low-pain injections at the temple. In just minutes, the temples will appear fuller and more youthful. Adding volume to the temple area may also help diminish crow’s feet to a degree. Restylane Defyne lasts 9-12 months. It takes about one week to see the full results of the treatment. For patients seeking to restore facial volume loss at the temples without the risks or permanence of surgery, Restylane has incredible results.
Another high-density filler that is suitable for temple augmentation is Radiesse. Unlike the dermal fillers mentioned above, Radiesse contains an aqueous gel made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres.
Just like Juvederm, Radiesse results work instantly. It fills indented temples and may also smooth outer eye wrinkles to a degree. Studies show that Radiesse triggers natural collagen production for more youthful skin as well. Radiesse lasts 12-18 months. At that point, we recommend seeing Dr. Sadati for a quick touch up to maintain results.
TEMPORAL BROW LIFT
For permanent correction of sagging temples, heavy eyebrows, and forehead lines, look no further than a temporal brow lift, or temple lift surgery. This relatively simple procedure raises the eyebrows, smoothing the skin and wrinkles along with it.
A brow lift is also known as a forehead lift. The temporal brow lift is similar, but it focuses more on the outer part of the brow and temple area. Dr. Sadati’s temporal eyebrow lift erases deep crow’s feet and smooths lateral forehead wrinkles while raising the brows to a more youthful position.
With the brows positioned where they ought to be, temples appear lifted and smoothed. The procedure also helps lift drooping brows. With a short downtime of just 10-14 days, Dr. Sadati’s patients enjoy a fresh, youthful appearance and well-rested eyes. As a leading Orange County plastic surgeon, he emphasizes natural results. Dr. Sadati also puts great detail into ensuring the scars are tiny and carefully hidden so no one will know you had a small ‘touch up’ to look your best.
